Shadows in Zamboula


Published April 13, 2013


LibriVox recording of Shadows in Zamboula by Robert E. Howard.
Read by Mark Nelson

Despite a warning received in the Suq by an elderly desert nomad, Conan stays the night in a cheap tavern in Zamboula, run by Aram Baksh. As night falls, a black Darfarian cannibal enters to drag him away to be eaten. All of the Darfar slaves in the city are cannibals who roam the streets at night. As they only prey on travellers, the people of the city tolerate this and stay locked securely in their homes, while nomads and beggars make sure to spend the night at a comfortable distance from its walls. This night, however, Conan finds a naked woman chasing through the streets after her deranged lover; Conan rescues them from an attack by the cannibals. She tells him that she tried to secure her lover's unending affection via a love potion which instead made a raving lunatic of him. Promising Conan "a reward" in return for his assistance, they attempt to kill the high priest responsible for the man's madness. (Summary by Wikipedia)

So more adventures with Conan the Barbarian. This time, he ends up in a city where the visitors need to watch their backs because there are cannibals in the area. Strangers tend to disappear. Throw in a pretty lady and Conan is on the job to discover the secrets in the land of Zamboula.

Excellent reader, thanks Mark!
